Past & Present
We all can say: "Thank You " to
Vito and Catharine Loconte,
there would be no JLF without them.
Jersey Lynne Farms, Inc. was founded and incorporated in 1969
by Vito and Catherine Loconte.
It is an independent family owned and operated business. It is now second generation, owned and operated by Vito and Catherine′s four children, Dorine, Michael, Maria and Diane, along with their spouses and children.
Vito Loconte started selling loose eggs in mushroom baskets door to door in the late 1940′s. Soon after he bought himself a small truck and started selling eggs to small stores and restaurants as well. As the business grew, Vito ventured into retail opening up his first retail store in 1955. He opened up several other retail stores over the next decade but always with his roots in wholesale distribution.
Finally in 1969, he opened Jersey Lynne Farms, Inc. as we know it today. It was the culmination of all Vito′s hard work and dreams. It was his desire to distribute Farm Fresh Grade A Eggs in the metropolitan area to all Supermarkets, Restaurants, Diners and Retail Stores. It was Vito's desire to become one of the biggest Egg Wholesalers in the Metropolitan Area.
